harmony_one_remote.jpgHome theaters are becoming more and more complicated, and with each new component comes another remote. Trying to teach the less tech-savvy of the family to use all those black and silver bars properly is just not practical any more. A good universal remote is necessary. Harmony has been one of the companies at the forefront of consumer-level universal remotes for years now, for good reason. Harmony has built a solid following thanks to their wonderfully simple and flexible software that makes programming their remotes easy for even the least techno-savvy user.

The Harmony One takes the knowledge derived from all of the company's previous remotes and builds upon this, making one of the most modern user-friendly remotes on the planet, all for a price of only $249.99.

The One has the ability to control 15 different components and a mix of both a small touch screen and numerous backlit buttons for all commonly-used functions. Packed in a sleek and shiny package, the One is as beautiful as it is functional. An included lithium ion battery and charging base station keep the remote ever ready for use and the charge lasts days should you forget to replace it in the charger. Harmony's activities profiles let you set start-up macros for anything you could need. The Help function will walk you through the macros when things don't go as planned.
